Scalable quantum computing will open completely new possibilities for many industrial and academic research and development efforts, comparable to emergence of integrated circuits in the 20th century.
The shuttling-based trapped-ion quantum processing node offers a route to increased scalability, while retaining a high level of control. Small subsets of qubits are kept within a microstructured trap array. Dynamic qubit register reconfiguration operations offer an effective all-to-all connectivity. Optical addressing of individual ions in a small qubit register is used to perform laser-driven quantum gate operations at high fidelity.
The combination of the high-performance computer Mogon II based at JGU Mainz and the trapped-ion quantum computer allows to realize computationally expensive hybrid algorithms. Example applications for such algorithms are catalyst research in chemistry and quantum machine learning.
Atomic ions exhibit no fabrication variance. All qubits feature the same properties.
